public interface RemoteAuthenticationManager
Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> attemptAuthentication(String username, String password) throws RemoteAuthenticationException
GrantedAuthorityobjects will be returned.
In order to maximise remoting protocol compatibility, a design decision was taken to operate with minimal arguments and return only the minimal amount of information required for remote clients to enable/disable relevant user interface commands etc. There is nothing preventing users from implementing their own equivalent package that works with more complex object types.
username- the username the remote client wishes to authenticate with.
password- the password the remote client wishes to authenticate with.
RemoteAuthenticationException- if the authentication failed.
